What does Remembrance Day mean to those who have represented our country in past and current conflicts?

In our five-part series leading up to Remembrance Day, we show you the faces behind the poppy and stories of veterans from four different conflicts. As you’ll see, the faces of war veterans are ever-changing.

CityNews is collaborating with York Regional Police on the force’s The Remembrance Project, where veterans share their contributions, their reasons for enlisting and why Remembrance Day is not just a school assembly or procession at City Hall.

Reporter Avery Haines will also bring you the story of a special program at Toronto’s Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care geared towards Holocaust survivors.

View all five parts of the series below. A new story will be added each night after it airs on CityNews at Six.
